So here is my setup:
There is one Syncthing ‘master’ where I add devices and accept shared folders
A config file is automatically added to each client to share C:\username\Desktop to the master with the folder id of username_desktop.
username1 logs into computer1 and shares their desktop files to master as username1_desktop which I accept on the master.
username1 logs into computer2 where they have no desktop files and automatically shares desktop as username1_desktop to the master, but if I accept this username1_desktop files get deleted from the master, and then from computer1.
If instead of sharing to the master, if computer one accepted the share from the master then it would receive the files instead of deleting them. However, there doesn’t seem to be any way I can automate this.
Are my dreams of replacing folder redirection with Syncthing crushed? Is my only option to create a separate folder ID per computer and not have the Desktop folder sync across computers?
